Stevenson, Robert Louis - Treasure Island. Thames, not dated, late 1950s? Regent Classics Series. Young Jim Hawkins' life became exciting from the moment he first clapped eyes on the brown old seaman with the sabre-cut and heard the buccaneers' villainous sea song whistling round the cove below the 'Admiral Benbow'. From the quiet old inn young Jim set out in quest of Captain Flint's treasure, his companions as bloodthirsty a crew of cut-throats as ever sailed under the skull-and-crossbones. Long John Silver, an engaging rascal with a merry eye, a smooth tongue, and one leg, posed as the boy's friend till, abord the Hispaniola, Jim found him out. After that, cutlasses and muskets came glinting out in the tropical sunlight, and a battle of wits began. Desperate perils had to be overcome, and much blood flowed, before Flint's golden hoard was borne safely off Treasure Island. 246pp plus 1 plate, red cloth, gold blocked spine lettering, hardback. Illustrated with a colour frontispiece. Top-edge 'dusty', very good, complete with good (slightly sunned spine, chip at foot of spine, edge-wear, slightly 'dusty') wrapper.
